AND THE WINNERS WERE. . .
CAMARILLO SPRINGS G.C. - 10/05/2017: An abbreviated 11 player field opened our Autumn Quarter with a long delayed return to Cam Springs,
one of our Group's original prime venues. The most startling stat was that for the first time in forever not a single birdie was posted the entire day!!! Marilou Miller topped the money list with a modest $18 after taking 1sts in both Low Net & Partners plus a tie for 2nd in Low Putts. Gordon Crook collected $17 for winning Low Putts and placing 2nd in both Super Gross & Partners. Ron Troncatty's 79 was Low Round of the Day that earned $13 from the Super Gross award, 2nd Putts tie, and 3rds in Net & Partners. Rob Stone's $10 came from winning the Porter Low Gross and a Partners 3rd place. Sunny Weiss picked up $9 with 2nds in Net & Partners. Rich Marzella managed a winning "M&M" partnering with Marilou for a $5 share and the Porter Gross runner-up spot paid $4 to Tom Knickerbocker. SIMI HILLS G.C. - 10/12/2017: The money list was dominated by Val Mayer who usurped nearly 1/3 of the entire wager pot monies with his magnificent solo tweeter on the designated Hole #4 that qualified him to appropriate the ENTIRE "designated" birdie pot worth itself some $48 and then Val's 2nd placings in both Low Net & Partners boosted his take home to $61 big ones! Tom Knickerbocker pocketed $36 from a solo blind drawn birdie and share in another one plus a tie for 2nd in Porter Low Gross. Sunny Weiss posted a stunning 83 Gross score that led to an even more startling 56 Low Net which captured 1sts in both Net & Partners along with a 2nd Low Putts for a total winnings of $30. The Porter Low Gross award and Partners 1st place sent $24 to Rob Stone, followed by identical $23 payouts to Gordon Crook and Bruce Simon with Mr. Crook taking Low Putts 1st, Super Gross 2nd, and Partners 3rd while Mr. Simon's resume listed a shared blind birdie, a tie for 2nd in Porter Gross, and 3rds in both Net & Partners. Ron Troncatty's only marker was a modest $8 for winning the Super Low Gross. A second place tie in Partners paid out $5 to John Moskoff and Brian Oblak's Super Gross runner-up tie was good for a token Two Bucks. BUENAVENTURA G.C. - 10/19/2017:The wager pots were divvied up rather evenly with only 3 of the 13 combatants leaving empty-handed. Top dollar of $32 was earned by Bruce Simon with a solo birdie and FIRSTS in both Low Net & Partners. Marilou Miller's $21 came from a tie for Low Putts and a shared birdie. Brian Oblak parlayed his solo birdie, a 2nd in Super Gross, and Partners 3rd into a $20 payout. Another $20 wandered into Rob Stone's wallet after winning Porter Low Gross, a shared birdie, and tie for Partners 1st place. Jimmy Dodds pocketed $19 from a shared birdie,tie for Low Net, & Partners 3rd. The Super Low Gross winner was Gordon Crook whose impressive 76 posting also tied for Partners 1st and earned a $13 total. John Moskoff tied Marilou for the day's Low Putts to pickup $11. The Porter Gross runner-up spot and tie for Partners 1st place sent $9 to Tom Knickerbocker and a pair of $7 amounts saluted Ron Troncatty's shared birdie and Val Mayer's tie for Low Net. BALBOA MUNI G.C. - 10/26/2017: The day's Low Round of 76 put Brian Oblak at the top of the stat sheet with a big $62 in winning accumulated from a pair of blind-drawn birdies, FIRSTS in Super Gross, Low Net, and Low Putts, along with a Partners 2nd place. Jimmy Dodds picked up an even Twenty Dollars by tying Mr. Oblak for Low Net, tying for 2nd in Low Putts, and snagging Partners 1st. Rob Stone's $18 came from his solo blind birdie & Porter Gross runner-up while Ron Troncatty collected $16 with the final blind-drawn birdie and Super Gross runner-up. One our ancient ones, Jim Jacobs, posted a gross score matching his age and that produced $14 from Partners 1st, Low Putts 2nd, & Low Net 3rd. The Porter Low Gross winner was Tom Knickerbocker who added a Partners 3rd for an even Ten Bucks. A Partners 2nd placing was worth $4 for Marilou Miller and a Partners 3rd paid out a pittance $2 to John Moskoff, leaving another half-dozen competitors unmentioned.
